I am highly recommending this place! Nice location, friendly staff, and good breakfast! Thanks for making my stay wonderful! Too many little stairs but that makes it cost after all. All must see my places are within walking distance, fantastic restaurant called sofa just around the corner, nice cafe called dervish with superb Turkish coffee.

We walked from the tram stop at Sultanamet 5 minutes past Agia Sophia with trolley cases.Welcoming outside seating, prices clearly displayed, pretty comfortable rooms, good wifi. Great advice on using electronic ticketing on trams and metro to airport, quick and easy. Good breakfast, walking distance of Topkapi Palace, nice shops in quiet street. Excellent value, home from home

A two night stay at this compact Hotel (I believe there are 8 rooms?) offered an unequaled view out my window on the 2cnd floor. I was literally right beneath the Blue Mosque. Tiny rooms, and cramped bathrooms were more than passable for just myself. The water pressure was adequate and I didn't plan on spending other than recovery time... More

So I checked out a few other cafes in the area near Blue Mosque and I thought it was okay. When I went to this place HOLY SMOKES! The hookah kept going for 2 hours and it didn't burn. If you want a nice and quality hookah from a guy who's learned by trial and error go to Lamp Hotel.... More

The strong points of this hotel are its location and staff. I stayed at this hotel between Sep 23 and 27, 2014. The hotel is accessible from Ataturk airport using public transportation. Once you leave customs are, turn right and walk following the sign “Metro”. The Metro “Havalimani” station is at the concourse level of the airport. You will need... More

Close to many attractions on the European side and easy access to public transportation. We chose the room at the top that has a great view to the Blue Mosque and the Marmara Sea. The breakfast buffet was quite OK. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

Hotels in the very heart of a city fall into two categories: they are either very luxurious, grand, spacious, corporate and consequently phenomenally expensive, or they are small, individual, quirky and privately owned. If you have come to Istanbul to see the sights and stay in the old town, this is the place for you. It is in what used... More
